After more than a year of renovations, the new look of Lexington's Triangle Park was officially unveiled Tuesday.
"You think Lexington can't get any better, but it just got better today with this," remarked Kentucky's First Lady Jane Beshear. She helped re-dedicate the space the city wants to revitalize. Tree-lined lawns and a brand-new café are part of that plan.
"I love the renovations. Hopefully we'll be able to bring our dog down here and have some picnics and hopefully they'll do more live music," said park visitor Kacie Bullock.
Future plans for this park include concerts, movies, even possible group workouts. City leaders are hoping the open space brings big crowds. The group behind the park, Triangle Foundation, spent $1.3 million to renovate the spot.
"It's an opportunity for people to come and sit and enjoy the downtown, but also to have a bit of the grass and the rural feeling that it brings, it really is all about what Lexington is," said First Lady Jane Beshear.
